New Findings Reported from Tel Aviv University Describe Advances in Magnetic Nanoparticles (Tumor Localization Using Magnetic Nanoparticle-Induced Acoustic Signals)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Biotech Week -- Data detailed on Magnetic Nanoparticles have been presented. According to news reporting out of Tel Aviv, Israel, by NewsRx editors, research stated, "Cancer is a major public health problem worldwide, especially in developed countries. Early detection of cancer can greatly increase both survival rates and quality of life for patients."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Tel Aviv University, "A magnetoacoustic-based method had been previously proposed for early tumor detection, in a minimal invasive procedure, using magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs). This paper presents a supporting localization algorithm that can provide the clinician with essential tumor location data and could enable a sequential biopsy. It provides localization algorithm development, as well as its validation in both computerized simulations and in vitro experiments. Three-dimensional (3-D) tumor localization is demonstrated with an error of 2.14 mm and an overlapping volume of 84% of the actual tumor."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The obtained results are promising and prove the feasibility of tumor localization using a time difference of arrival algorithm along with a magnetoacoustic detection scheme."
